  30. 30. Findings and Analysis <ul><li>Missions, Goals & Objectives </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CCSD’s vision lacks “respect”, “citizenship” or “diversity”. Moapa Valley schools mission statements all include these terms. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CCSD’s goals & objectives discuss reducing the achievement gap and increasing achievement for ELL and IEP students. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Moapa Valley schools do not include goals for Native American, Hispanic or FRL students. </li></ul></ul>
  31. 31. Findings and Analysis <ul><li>Demographics </li></ul><ul><ul><li>CCSD’s demographics differ significantly from Moapa Valley schools. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>There is a strong influence by the LDS and, increasingly, the Catholic church in the community. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data indicates limited ethnic and cultural representation among administration, teachers, and staff. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data revealed perception of mistrust of school and government among Native American population. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data revealed conflicting opinions regarding equity of resources allocated to the subgroup. </li></ul></ul>
  32. 32. Findings and Analysis <ul><li>School Community Involvement </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Being a small, “tight-knit” community, schools are one of the cornerstones of the community. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Schools and school personnel are highly active in the community, reaching out through clubs, activities, community events, and an “Educational Support Center” on the Paiute reservation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data revealed a recent trend separating religion and the schools resulting in LDS community events no longer being allowed to be held on school campuses. </li></ul></ul>
  33. 33. Implications and Conclusions <ul><li>Mission, Goals, & Objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Moapa Schools’ goals and objectives indicate minimal cultural proficiency concerning the identified needs of the Native American and FRL students. </li></ul>
  34. 34. Implications and Conclusions <ul><li>Demographics </li></ul><ul><li>Moapa Schools are progressing toward cultural proficiency and cultural informancy in relation to the needs of Native American students. </li></ul><ul><li>There is resistance and a need to increase awareness among community shareholders. </li></ul><ul><li>Native American students have had a negative view of education which is beginning to change. </li></ul>
  35. 35. Implications and Conclusions <ul><li>School Community Involvement </li></ul><ul><li>Moapa Schools are highly proficient at community involvement. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Care must be taken with respect to religious cultural informancy to ensure equity of access while following all CCSD rules and regulations as well as state and federal law. </li></ul></ul>
